    Linux and Windows are two different types of operating systems. Linux is more secure and more efficient than Windows. One other difference is that Linux files are case-sensitive and Windows files are not.

    Example:

    On a Linux server, home.html and Home.html are different names.

    On a Windows server, home.html, Home.html, and HOME.HTML are the same name.

    One of the best difference is that Linux files are case-sensitive and Windows files are not. Linux also has more of the features web designers expect, so unless you have websites which need specific Windows applications, Linux is the preferred choice.

    There are lots of features of Linux web hosting services. Following are the few of them:

    1. They are most up to date with recent technology, supporting the newest programming languages, blogging / e-commerce platforms etc

    2. They manage their email servers properly, so your out going emails will not be marked as spam because they used spamAssassian

    3. More efficient technical support

    1. Linux mostly provides CLI console which requires lesser memory. Windows provides GUI console and so it requires more memory, otherwise, it hangs.
    2. Linux provides many levels of security like tables, tcp_wrapper and pam. Windows provides security in the form of firewall only.
    3. Linux is open source, it has many open source control panels for managing to host but most commonly used control panels are cPanel/WHM and Plesk which are paid. Windows server, most commonly used control panels are Plesk and WebsitePanel.
